    Been keen to meet up with solo travellers for a while but hadn't realised this section was available. i would like to talk to other female solo travellers as there don,t seem to be too many of us and it gets lonely some times.
    P.s I,ve been on meets with the boys but they did spent a lot of time tinkering under their bonnets:Wink:

    Boys will be boys !

    And girls will be girls.

    So it's pretty amazing we breed at all.

    Hi you need to come to a Southern meet, no under bonnet tinkerers here, maybe try the Carmarthen meet in April or the Shepton Mallet show in Sept both have a number of solos who would welcome you, besides the rest of us don't differentiate. Must be a sourthern thing, hee hee

    Thanks for invite to the deep south. Devon is about 600miles for me, one way but it sounds worth it if only for the no tinkering. I'm just heading towards a life of summer in Scotland / winter on the continent , so I'll arrange my "south" adventures just before i hop on ,or off a ferry. Anybody else about to move into "travelling life" and finding it a bit scarey, although very exciting. My main concern is how many locals (pubs) can one woman have. Answers appreciated to both questions.K.

    Hi Katirene. Welcome from another solo lady.

    I've been known to tinker under a bonnet occasionally - but only when I can't find someone else to do it for me. :Laughing:

    helpppppppppppppp

    I must confess to know what you mean Caztur and i am ashamed to say it but feminine guile can some times save the day but only if i am really desperate. Engines have always confused me and have found that a few beers in the fridge can be fair exchange for a bit of engine knowledge. Does feminism really deplore this atitude or is it just being realistic
    p.s idon't mind if the knowledge comes from a male or a female
    p.p.s i can put oil in now

    We have a cheap, very cheap, Russian vac. It is brilliant for flies. No more squashed flies on the walls, just suck 'em up.

    I did consider adding 'Hoover' so that the girls :)Rofl1:) would know what I meant by 'vacuum cleaner' :Doh:

    You'll be telling us that you don't know what a duster is ......:Eek!: :)BigGrin::BigGrin:)

    I always thought that the idea of getting away from it all included getting away from the housework - including dusting:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Dusters etc.

    I cann't believe i'm discussing "house" work but i have said to many people who stay in wheelless houses that one of the great pleasures of living in a motorhome is that you can do your "house" work in a beautiful location. On the odd occassion when i do get out the mr sheen(1 tin lasts for several years ) i head for a spot with a nice view. Aren't we the lucky ones?
